The education system in England and Wales



Description

In England and Wales the age of a child is taken from 1 September - 31 August for the intake starting that September. Applications for primary school places need to be made before the child is five – many schools admit children at four years.
Applications for secondary education are usually made the Christmas before the year the child is due to start. Parents have to apply for places at each of the schools their child will attend – even if the nursery, primary or junior school are linked parents must make an application to move them on to the next stage. If a school is popular there is no guarantee that the child will get a place.
